Summary

Jacob Tamme has long-established chemistry with quarterback Peyton Manning dating back to their days playing together with the Indianapolis Colts. Tamme is not the same player he used to be, but he's valuable to the Broncos for a few reasons. Tamme can fill in for Julius Thomas as the team's primary move tight end if Thomas gets banged up. He can still run routes and knows what Manning likes from his targets. Tamme is not the threat after the catch so much anymore, but he can fill in and move the chains. The veteran tight end has worked hard to be a plus-player on special teams. That's his biggest value for the team now aside from veteran depth. Tamme has a $3.5 million cap number this year with only $500,000 in dead money. This makes him a candidate for release if the team needs to free up some cap space. However, his experience, chemistry and special-teams value means that his roster spot is probably safe. (May 25)
